The biblical movie “Joseph,” is about the eleventh son of Jacob. Joseph was the firstborn son of Jacob’s wife, Rachel, whom he loved very much. Joseph had 11 other brothers. Ten of them were older and one, who was named Benjamin, was his younger brother born to Rachel as well.
Joseph was Jacob’s favorite. He loved them all but Joseph was Rachel’s son and he blessed him with a coat of many colors. She had been barren for many years and the Lord blessed her to conceive in her older years. There is really a lot that goes on, too much to put into words, so you will have to watch the movie and read the bible to get the full understanding of who and what Joseph was and did.
I love this Christian movie. I will continue to give you a brief summary and Christian movie review about the Joseph movie.
According to the bible in Genesis 37, Jacob lived in the land where his father had stayed, the land of Canaan. He was 17 and was a shepherd boy. You will see in the Joseph movie how his brothers hated him because their father loved him more. Joseph had a dream and told it to his father and brothers that they would all “bow down” to him. He had a couple of more dreams as well as you will see when you watch the movie about Joseph.
One day Joseph was told by his father to go and see about his brothers, and so he did. They conspired to get rid of him, kill him if necessary, but then decided to sell him into slavery as some Midianite traders were passing by going to Egypt.
God was with Joseph
When they arrived in Egypt, Joseph was then sold to a man named Potiphar, who was one of Pharaoh’s officials. He was given charge over all of Potiphar’s house because he knew that God was with Joseph and he was very wise.
Potiphar’s wife, in the Joseph movie, had her eye on Joseph and tried to seduce him. It did not work. She lied on Joseph and he was then thrown into prison. He was with a couple of men that had served Pharaoh that had been accused of stealing. They both had dreams and Joseph interpreted the dreams and it came to be true. The one that lived was released and given back his position in Pharaoh’s palace. He remembered Joseph and how he interpreted his dream. Pharaoh had been having dreams and no one could interpret them for him. He was very disturbed by his dreams. The man then suggested that Joseph could do it and the guards brought him forth.
Joseph did indeed interpret the dreams and in turn, Pharaoh gave Joseph a position in his court, second only to him. As you can see, Joseph had a mission to fill to reach his destiny. God had something great for Joseph but he had to go through some things before he was ready and bring glory to God in the process.
I hope you have enjoyed my short movie review of the Joseph movie. There is so much more that happens. Watch the Joseph movie with your family and friends to get a full understanding on how he was truly used by God in a great way for the His glory and for His people.
After you have watched the movie, let us know what you think. Would you have been able to go through what Joseph did? I think the Joseph movie makes for a great bible study. He did go through a lot but we are able to do what God calls us to do through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is our strength, and we can do all things, through Him.
God bless and enjoy the movie!
